"We're going to play some new songs," Pierre announced, before diving into tunes "Disappear" and "Her World Destroyed My Planet," off of the Mark Hoppus-produced My Dinosaur Life, released Jan. 19.

The box got extra wobbly when MCS ventured into their past - performing killer versions of "The Future Freaks Me Out," "Attractive Today," and "Last Night," off of their first three records, respectively.

Check out a snippet of MCS' best NYC performances: "Pulp Fiction," off of their new record, and closing jam "Everything is Alright," below.
